APWPT PDF frequency in the world
« on: July 13, 2020, 12:58:40 pm »

Hi all,

Pretty nice summary here:

https://apwpt.org/downloads/handoutfrequencies2016.pdf
last revision is 30 april 2020

I'm from Italy and know very well Italian laws;
little incongruences are still there about Italy.

I'd like to know if it's the same for USA or other Countries.

Thanx!
(lot of time without shows is good time to invest in learning...)

Don't worry, no body goes there  ;D

One little addition for the UK, for the licence free VHF band there are specific frequencies that you are allowed to use, you don't have free reign of the band, these allowed frequencies are:
173.800, 174.000, 174.200, 174.400, 174.600, 174.800, 175.000 MHz.
Older legacy equipment can also use 174.100, 174.500 but modern equipment is not allowed to.

Well, let's see; in the last couple years we've had Elton John, Paul McCartney, the Backstreet Boys, Michael Bublé, Justin Timberlake, Michelle Obama (twice), etc., etc. And that's all the way up here in the middle of nowhere...

In truth, American-based tours (which is most of them) tend to assume that license-free wireless microphone usage that's legal in the US is also legal in Canada, and this is largely the case. The Canadian rules tend to be a bit more relaxed (250mW license-free operation in the UHF TV band, for example), but otherwise are similar to many of the US rules. Separate Canadian certification is required for all devices, but because the markets are so closely aligned most equipment with an FCC ID will also have an IC ID.

Voluntary licensing of TV-band wireless microphones is possible as a way to help prevent interference from White Space Devices, but otherwise gives the licensee no additional privileges or protection (including from other unlicensed wireless microphones). Some additional licensed-only spectrum is available in bands that are similar (but not identical) to those in the US. Voluntary licensing of TV-band microphones and the use of most (but not all) mandatorily-licensed wireless microphone spectrum is available only to "broadcasters and other program producers, large venue operators/owners and professional sound and touring companies, theatre, music and sporting events/similar organizations that require high quality audio wireless microphones as part of their productions/events".
